Plenty of the professional men can't compete at that level, either. Do we kick Greg Norman out cause he doesn't play like he used to some weekends? He is a favorite. Wie is a favorite. They bring $ in.


It's not the Olympics, man.

I know for sure I'd rather watch her than John Daley if you know what I mean.

I agree with Vic. How many times has she made the cut in men's tournaments?

She's one beautiful asian girl. It's a good thing for golf. Why would I want to watch a fat white guy play golf?

What about the guy that is only 2 strokes ahead of her? Actually she is at +8 right now. Also this is the first 12 holes of a very long tourney, and oh yeah, she's a GIRL.https://www.pgatour.com/leaderboards/...006/index.html

Someone should invite me to play. I could do 9, 10, heck even a dozen over after 10 holes.

I am not a golf fan (not even close). I don't understand her obsession with getting bounced from men's tournaments. Does she make more money that way?

Is your objection that you don't think she's good enough or that it's a girl on the men's tour? It seems this may be a PnR thread.

Problem is the courses are too dam long for most golfers. She may need to improve on driving distance to perform better in the men's tournaments. Women tournaments are about short play, which is very important in the origional aspect of golf.

The same number of LPGA tournaments she's won. Try beating the women first Michelle. At least Annika was kicking everyone's @ss on the LPGA tour when she gave the men's tour a try.

She's not good enough. She should play in the Monday qualifier like everyone else. If she plays her way in, fine. Otherwise, she doesn't belong there.

I think she is going to be great someday, she only 16 (I think). That day hasn't come yet. She needs to win on the womens tour and prove hat she desirves the PGA invites. Right now she is taking the spot away from a more qualified male player, who might actually have a chance to win and make money.
